Little Big Town concert to precede the game
The national spotlight will shine on Jacksonville again on Nov. 9, when the NBC Sports Network will televise the Navy-Marine Corps Classic basketball game live.
The contest between the University of Florida and Georgetown University will tip off at 9 p.m. and will be played aboard the deck of the USS Bataan at Mayport Naval Air Station.
"I'm excited to have NBC Sports Network on board for the Navy-Marine Corps Classic," said Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown. "This promises to be much more than a game; it’s an opportunity for a national audience to see two great teams in a unique setting that showcases the pride Jacksonville residents have for our city's longstanding friendship with the military and veteran community."
